Array Task-Cards Starting with multiplication

Arrays are a great way to introduce multiplication in grade 2 and 3. Playing with arrays will help students model multiplication as repeated addition and understand the properties of multiplication. It is very important that we help students visualize and understand multiplication early on so that we build a strong foundation to support the learning of division, fractions and so much more.

Students need to make connections that will help them gain automaticity with multiplication and division facts. These connections come through a deep understanding of the properties of multiplication.

We have created some array task-cards like the ones below to practice multiplication and its properties. You can print and laminate them. Find the pdf along with the array cards to cut at the end of the post. There are some worksheets as well that can be laminated and filled with a marker to save paper and some arrays to cut for games and activities.
